Subject: Hired!
The main focus of 'Men and Jobs' (the Social Secuirity Agency doesnt mess around with their film titles!) is how you need a job, right NOW. Representatives of the government agency trot out and read lines (from left to right) how important it is that we all work when Johnny is overseas. We then see an employment office at work, and how a female is matched to a job most suited to her, and how an older skilled man gets a job just like that. I sorta liked this segment as it shows a totally politically incorrect faux-pax at a job interview.. he lights up a cigarette! Though I highly doubt this rosey picture of come-on-in-and-get-a-job, it held my attention til it's (abrupt) ending.
